New Courses

This morning Debs has been putting together details of some classes for the end of this year and thinking ahead to the New Year and what might be useful. She’s thinking of Christmas presents for her family, so presumes that it’s on other people’s minds too. 🙂

First up is the brand new Reindeer textile taxidermy course. This is the chance to make a beautiful, unique item to decorate your home over the festive period, or beyond if you prefer.

Festive or not, a stuffed reindeer head is a fab addition to any decor.

Next up is a patchwork cup and saucer. Debs has had one for years, by the side of her bed to put her jewellery in overnight when she takes it off. She made one for her mum who has it next to her chair in the lounge so she can store her rings safely when she puts on hand cream. They can be made in a variety of fabric to suit your decor or in a mix so they will go anywhere. Debs (some of you will NOT be surprised to hear) has a purple one!

Multi-patterned patchwork cup and saucer. Perfect for keeping bits and pieces safe. We can’t promise that it will stop your cat going fishing for them though …

Another course coming up is to make reusable fabric bags for your holiday gifting and beyond. Debs first started making these when her family decided to gift local gins one Christmas. She thought that whilst they were beautiful bottles of fantastic gin, they didn’t look very nice when wrapped up so she decided to make these. They best thing is that you can make them in a variety of sizes so will make even the most oddly shaped bottles look special (Chambourd and Galiano, we’re looking at you … )

Any size bottle beautifully wrapped to make that gift look as special as the thought behind it.

And finally Debs is planning her Memory Creatures classes. She will be helping you to take the fabric items of your loved ones and make them into something you can display and enjoy. Over the years she has made a variety of these, most recently a pair of memory bears from a mother-in-law’s wedding dress. Whilst Debs is happy to take on commissions she knows that many people will want to be able to create their own creature to make it extra special.

How gorgeous is this bear? What a fantastic way to remember a loved one.

Another sports top given a new lease of life as a seal. Clever use of the original top’s features reinforces the connection between it and the new creature..

Details of pricing and dates will be added to the website over the next day or two. Feel free to tap in if you want to confirm a date sooner, or if you want to chat to Debs about commissioning her to create one for you. Memory creatures start at £45. If you want one for Christmas you’ll need to be quick as Debs’ order book is filling up.
